Visitors from Jersey, three farms over two days ......

It's been a busy few days for Tom Roberts & Nicola Chandler showing visitors from Easenmyne Foodservice, Longueville Manor, the Dolan Hotel Group and the Sumas Hotel, all based in Jersey.  Day one consisted of visits to Dingley Dell Pork Farm then onto home of the Lincoln Red cattle, Yarn Hill Farm.
